Soapbox: Sony Needs to Set the Record Straight on PS4K Soon

Sony Needs to Set the Record Straight on PS4K Soon

Silent fright

I think, after reading in detail the reams of information that leaked regarding PlayStation 4K yesterday, that Sony is doing right by existing PS4 owners – but it's clear that not everyone agrees. Those of you that know me in person will know that I have a mild obsession with NeoGAF, spending incalculable hours trawling through the...

Hands On: Reliving a Memorable War in Valkyria Chronicles Remastered on PS4

Reliving a Memorable War in Valkyria Chronicles Remastered on PS4

Well in, Welkin

Valkyria Chronicles Remastered is a fine example of a game that'll always look bloody lovely because of its art style. When the original Valkyria Chronicles launched on the PlayStation 3 all the way back in 2008, it was a stunner, sporting wistful, superbly crafted watercolour-esque visuals. From start to finish the title was a joy...

Soapbox: Street Fighter V Gets a Lot of Hate, But It Succeeds Superbly as a Tournament Game

Street Fighter V Gets a Lot of Hate, But It Succeeds Superbly as a Tournament Game

Ramsey reckons Capcom's latest is a joy to watch

I stayed up until 07:00AM this morning watching the last eight of a Street Fighter V tournament. When I told editor Sammy Barker about my shenanigans, he looked at me like I was a complete lunatic – but I don't regret it one bit, because Capcom's vision for the brawler has finally clicked with...

If you're coming from Bloodborne, then Dark Souls III's limited use Estus Flask may be proving something of a wake-up call. Fortunately, you can upgrade the number of uses that your magical Thermos has by collecting Estus Shards and presenting them to Andre the Blacksmith. There are eleven Estus Shards in the...

Poll: So, Which Souls Game Is the Best?

So, Which Souls Game Is the Best?

Blood, ash, and eternity

Right, it's time to settle this once and for all. Maybe. Dark Souls III has been out for about a week now on PlayStation 4 - at least here in the West - so we're going to assume that many of you have put a decent amount of time into this supposed final entry. With that in mind, we want you to tell us what your favourite...

First Impressions: Furi Is a PS4 Indie You Shouldn't Ignore

Furi Is a PS4 Indie You Shouldn't Ignore

Hell hath no Furi like a prisoner scorned

It's disappointing, but it's become a dirty word, "indie". Take a cursory glance at the PlayStation Blog or even this very website, and you'll find readers ragging on forays that have been developed on slimmer budgets than a Whopper meal. Curation plays a part in that: there's some real tosh on the...

The mirror reflected

I've Never Played... Uncharted: Drake's Fortune - Part 4 & 5

Double trouble

So, I somehow managed to forget to share Episode 4 with you lovely bunch. It has been live on YouTube for a while now, but I definitely slacked on my job of letting you all know here, as such you've got yourselves a double dose of myself and our Push Square Podcast co-host, Mr Ben Potter, playing through the infamous Uncharted: D

DLC Review: Building Deathclaw Arenas in Fallout 4: Wasteland Workshop on PS4

Building Deathclaw Arenas in Fallout 4: Wasteland Workshop on PS4

Are you not entertained?

Unlike Automatron, Wasteland Workshop, Fallout 4's second slice of downloadable content, doesn't feature any quests, stories, or new characters. It's very much an add-on pack in both name and nature, providing you with a load of new settlement crafting options and not much else. However, for its relatively low price tag,...

RIGS Brings AAA Future Sports to PlayStation VR

Jumping through hoops

Following the colossal success of Rocket League, future sports are back in a big way. RIGS: Mechanized Combat League, the latest from Medievil and Killzone: Mercenary developer Guerrilla Cambridge, is in essence a mech-based deathmatch experience – but with a twist.

Which Character Class Should You Select in Dark Souls III on PS4?

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 112

Backlog busting

'Tis the week before Dark Souls III, so all round Push Square, there is much anticipation – and a little despair. Seriously, though, there's more variety in this week's WAYP than any previous editions. We have a sneaking suspicion that that won't be the case next time, so make the most of it. Sammy Barker, Editor: I blame Robert...
